If you have ever seen rock tape on someone’s legs in the park, grocery store, or even the mall you might be wondering where they received the functional taping from. At McBrearty Soft Tissue and Sport Chiropractic, functional taping is one of the many modalities that we utilize to help patients get pain-free and stay pain-free. If you have questions about the functional taping process and the benefits that come along with wearing it please contact our office 330-491-0381 or visit our website at www.yourartdoc.com to ask questions.

Our office has several team members that are certified in applying rock tape on where the doctor sees fit. Please stop by if you are interested in the tape or if you would like to purchase some from our office.

Rock tape is just another tool that we use in our office on a daily basis. We do not utilize any tools that do not give an obvious benefit to each patient. With that being said, rock tape is not just another tool, it’s an effective tool. Rock tape has the ability to bring more blood flow to the desired area for a faster recovery time. If you are searching the internet for a chiropractor who utilizes the functional taping process, you might find that not many call professionals use rock tape. It is not because it lacks effectiveness, rather it is because it can be time-consuming to properly apply the tape to the correct area. It is because of the extensive approach we take with each patient, of why we do not shy away from using the tape because we promise our time to you upfront.

If you have shopped at Target, Walmart, or any other grocery store you might find knockoff brands of this tape in the store. However, it is very important to note that you should not be applying this tape yourself. It is advertised that you can apply this tape yourself, however, there is a reason there is a certification that comes along with using rock tape. The reason is that you can or could potentially worsen a condition if you are not an expert in anatomy and how the tape works. Due to that issue, we encourage all patients to ask questions so that they can gain a greater knowledge of the tape and how it works. You may be able to find YouTube videos on how to apply the tape, but you should consult your doctor before applying.

One of the reasons we choose to use rock tape over other types of tape is its durability. Although rock tape can be slightly expensive, it can last much longer than other forms of this tape. They sell waterproof versions of this tape which is a huge advantage because you can shower and work out while the tape is still attached to your body. At McBrearty Soft Tissue & Sport Chiropractic we sell this type of tape because it is very hard to find in stores. If you were interested in buying some of this tape or interested in talking about how it could help with your pain please contact our office.
